    Hi people, I hop someone can point me in the right direction. I have an Acer Travelmate 2480, running Windows XP, (genuine licensed copy). When I plug in a set of external speakers (new ones we just got 'em) the sound disappears after approving the pop-up box that shows itself when you plug in new peripherals. For the life of me, i cannot get these external speakers to work.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    Our Acers are a pain too, Acer located the output socket at the front so after a while the bloody things stop working and you have to fiddle about to get them working, gave up using the bloody things.

    Why on earth a designer would put output sockets at the front beggars belief.
